We had an excellent tour guide, who was enjoyable, informative, and made the whole experience worth every minute spent on the tour. He made you as interested in the history of not only the specific district, but the area of the city in which change has been and is currently taking place. The walk through the neighborhoods was also a treat as well as within the market. A totally enjoyable experience.

The Good, the Bad, and the Unnecessary
Sun, May 25, 08   11:30 AM JMVanLeuven Female 60-69 Unspecified Other
This tour takes three hours, the first two hours inside Chelsea Market, and the last hour outside touring the neighborhood. I enjoyed hearing about the history of Chelsea Market and tasting various foods inside the speciality shops, but found the last hour outside, when the tour guide pointed out high-priced Manhattan real estate, rather boring. I would suggest future tours spend three hours inside Chelsea Market, with more tastings and a tour through Food Network studios instead of peeking in the Buddha Bar and other high-priced restaurants.

There is a place for the outside tour, but this should not have been it. If this change cannot be effected , then I suggest the tour be shortened to 2 hours, all of it inside Chelsea Market.

Outstanding Chelsea Market Tour

Kurt entertained, educated, and enlightened the group. He was my tour leader for the second time, to my delight, and my guests were as thrilled with him as I was. The tour itself is interesting and delicious. We greatly enjoyed tasting our way through Chelsea Market, getting to see the gorgeous restaurants, and making our way around the Chelsea meatpacking district - we even shopped afterward, and went back to the Gansevoort Hotel for drinks. Five stars to this tour and especially to Kurt!

Highlight of our trip!

Every year a group of us go to NYC for our "girlfriends getaway". We usually do the same things every year...decided to try something new and saw an ad for this tour. It was a blast! Our guide was excellent, the history of the area was interesting and all the food was yummy! We plan to take the Soho/Greenwich tour next time.

Quality of tour and leader made me a hero
Fri, May 2, 08   12:00 PM jfulghum3 Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Our group was 3 couples , all interested in the history, local character of the

neighborhood, and unique quality and variety of the "groceries" at the market.

K(C?)urt, our well informed and lively tour leader, made the 3 hours the best

any of us spent while in NYC. Don't miss this opportunity to taste great food and

get a real feel for this neat part of NYC.

The others in the group were so pleased with my recommendation to do

the tour, I was a hero for the day!

This was the second food tour our group had taken. It was another great experience and introduced us to many new places we hope to revisit. Our guide was wonderful and made the tour informative and enjoyable. Thanks.
